About this event

The MT30 marine gas turbine is a close relative of the Rolls-Royce Trent 800 aero engine and is the largest of their current range. It is manufactured here in Bristol where it also underwent extensive testing.

Two of these units help provide the propulsion for the QE class aircraft carriers as well as powering a number of other naval vessels including some new US Navy ships.
